This is a prose poem I wrote a few years back about how people react to other people getting angry. How they care only for what's new

Look, first thing you have to understand is this, you can’t be angry anymore. It’s not allowed by any means, and I’ll tell you why. Every time you become angry, steaming hot, boiling over mad, everyone has to know, “Why”, and then suddenly, like fireworks going off, you become important. Not just important, no no no, let me tell you. You become the center of their thoughts and conversations, and then you think for a second. You consider it in your mind that this will be different, that people will care now, that this will make people change. Nope, sorry kid, doesn’t work that way. They close you once more and throw you on the shelf with the other silly dramas and you feel better for a day, a week, a month. But then again, dammit kid, you just get angry once more and finally, one day you’ll say that you’ve had enough, but that will be the day you die.
